All about IPL Franchise Chennai Super Kings

Posted by Atin Jain on December 3rd, 2018

The Chennai based franchise cricket team in IPL is the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The team was founded in the year 2008 and it plays its home matches at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

CSK had served a two-year suspension period from the IPL along with other IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals from July 2015 due to their owners who were involved in the 2013 IPL betting case.

Though CSK was suspended for 2 years, yet their popularity did not decrease. They have been the most consistent team of IPL and also the most successful franchises in the tournament along with Mumbai Indians.

CSK then returned to the league in 2018 and won the championship in the comeback season for the third time. They emerged as the winner in the three IPL seasons in the year 2018, 2011 and 2010. CSK also won the Champions League Twenty20 in the year 2010 and 2014.

The team is captained by MS Dhoni and is coached by Stephen Fleming. MS Dhoni’s leadership is one of the prime reason why CSK is one of the most followed franchise. The Chennai based franchise holds the record of most appearances in the IPL playoffs i.e. nine and in the final i.e. seven.

CSK is one of the most valuable franchises in the IPL. The brand value of the Chennai Super Kings in 2018 was estimated at million. Ahead of the upcoming IPL auction 2019 that is scheduled on December 18 in Jaipur, IPL stats show that Chennai Super Kings is the third most popular IPL team on social media after Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians.

Before IPL 2019, CSK has its Facebook followers: 12M, Twitter followers: 4.46M and Instagram followers: 1.5M. It will be really interesting to watch whether CSK manages to win IPL for the fourth time or not in the upcoming season that will start from 29 March 2019. The final IPL 2019 schedule is yet to be released.
